Once upon a time, there used to be a big library of custom tags and things created by the community and made available to browse and download.  Generally speaking, everything I am looking to build, has already been built, in whole or in part, by someone before me.  It was helpful.  Does anything like that exist anywhere today?   Please let me know.

I believe CFLIB.ORG is still in existence, but no longer updated.  AFAIK, it has not been replaced by anything.

 

HTH,

UPDATE:  Yes, https://cflib.org is still running.  Looks like nothings been added since 2017, though.

While CFLib is still running, there aren't any ColdFusion Custom Tags listed there.  It's a pretty decent repository of User Defined Functions (UDF).  RIAForge is dead, but some of the libraries are still available online (and have been archived by developers.)

 

Forgebox.io is a good source for modern CFML.  They list many CFCs and modules you can add to your project, but no custom tags.  (I've been converting custom tags to CFCs as I am able too... better performance, re-usuability and whitespace management.)

 

There's nowhere online that caters to hosting and promoting ColdFusion projects like RIAForge did.  Prior to that, there were a couple of different websites that allowed you to sell your code.  (I'd like to think that there's a market for that as I have developed a superior drop-in CFMap custom tag replacement that supports multiple map services.)
